Crab Alfredo

Gluten-Free, Crab, Alfredo, Pasta, Recipe

One of my favorite entrees at Red Lobster before I was diagnosed with CD was the Crab Alfredo. Here is my GF re-creation: During crab season, when king crab is marked down to $8.99/lb (versus the $30.00/lb something you pay at a restaurant), I buy a few pounds (okay, probably 20!) and keep it in […]

Gluten Free “Goldfish” Crackers

Gluten-Free-Goldfish-Crackers01-500x319

I am so excited to share this with you all, so I am going to make a second post today!!  This is not my recipe, I will never take credit for something I did not create. This recipe is from a cookbook by Roben Ryberg.  She is the founder and former owner of Miss Roben’s […]

Gluten Free Jello Poke Cake

Gluten Free Jello Poke Cake

Ohhhhh….this was the essence of summer in a cake pan! A strawberry jello “poke” cake, GF of course! The taste reminded me of Strawberry Shortcake. I wasn’t sure how this would turn out with a GF boxed cake mix, but I was tickled pink on the results, especially as I watched the cake disappear in […]

Gluten-Free Play Dough Recipe

Back to School & GF Play Dough

I just received a phone call from Sam’s new kindergarten teacher.  A very nice lady who has never heard of Celiac Disease.  As I explained CD to her and sited Play Doh as an example of cross-contamination, her only comment was, “I don’t know what I would do if I can’t have Play Doh in […]

Gluten Free "Spaghetti O’s"

Gluten Free "Spaghetti O's"

In my pursuit of easing Sam’s transition into the GF lifestyle, I have, as an occasional treat; tried to make replications of some of his favorites like the boxed macaroni and cheese, pizza, Happy Meals and now Spaghetti O’s. The mac and cheese, pizza and Happy Meals have been relatively simple to recreate.  Spaghetti O’s […]

Gluten Free Creamy Chicken Soup

Gluten Free Creamy Chicken Soup

I was rummaging through some old recipes and I found this one from my 8th grade Home Economics class.  Sam just had his tonsils removed and this soup is all he will eat.  Really, he chose the soup over ice cream!Cream of Chicken Soup 6 Tbs. Butter 1/3 c. Flour (I used Tom Sawyer’s GF […]

Gluten Free on Amazon.com

Gluten Free on Amazon.com

I often get questions on where I buy our GF food.  While I do shop at my local Whole Foods, R. Downs Nutrition Center, and Smith’s grocery store, I actually buy most of my pre-packaged foods on Amazon.  The great thing is that Amazon has a lot of great GF foods on their site.  Some […]

Udi’s Lemon Struesel Muffins

Udi's Lemon Struesel Muffins

I will start this off by admitting that I am not a huge fan of lemony desserts, so I was skeptical that I would like them.  Why I even bothered with the skepticism, I do not know…  there is something magical happening up in Denver because once again I was blown away. The flavor reminds […]

Udi’s Gluten Free Pizza Crusts

Udi's Gluten Free Pizza Crusts

A little while back I made a post on Udi’s Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread.  This bread single handedly changed the course of our gluten-free lives.  I feel like I’ve been a hermit for the past 5 years and have just emerged from a deep, dark cave and rejoined civilization again.  No kidding, it is that huge.  […]

Udi’s Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins

Udi's Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins

Yummy. These are wonderful blueberry muffins, although I think they are a bit more like blueberry “cupcakes”. This light and airy muffin with an extremely moist crumb (no nuking or toasting required) that encased the big, plump and juicy blueberries seemed more “cupcakey” in texture than the blueberry muffins I remember growing up.  My mom […]
